    Shooting Pregnant Women

    Stardate 5852.75

    Occupying a country is a dangerous affair... For the occupiers and the citizens. Sometimes you just have to wonder however. The War should never have happened to begin with, and even though Saddam was a total bastard, are the people better off now? Somehow, I doubt it.

    Two women in a car were speeding to a hospital as one was on the verge of giving birth, and after failing to stop at a US observation post, soldiers fired on their car, killing both women (and the unborn child).
    BAGHDAD, Iraq -- U.S. forces killed two Iraqi women -- one of them about to give birth -- when the troops shot at a car that failed to stop at an observation post in a city north of Baghdad, Iraqi officials and relatives said Wednesday. Nabiha Nisaif Jassim, 35, was being raced to the maternity hospital in Samarra by her brother when the shooting occurred Tuesday.
    Jassim, the mother of two children, and her 57-year-old cousin, Saliha Mohammed Hassan, were killed by the U.S. forces, according to police Capt. Laith Mohammed and witnesses.
    Eventually, this has got to end. With the massacre of civilians in Haditha by soldiers who were "pissed off" at their comrade being killed the top US General in Iraq is ordering "values" training for the troops stationed there. Jesus. Values training.
